We live in a tough, stressful world and we would love to get away from everything for probably a day or two, that is why we need to have a VACATION. This new film starring Ed Helms and Leslie Mann brings a whole new misadventure to a family trip from Chicago to California.

The movie is a homage film to the 1983 film of the same title which was made by National Lampoon. There were several sequels and incarnations of the original in the 80s and now it has taken a new and modern take on the classic.

With this mid-west family going into a long trip across states, encountering interesting characters, unfortunate places, awkward conversations, and sexual tensions that will bring cringe and laughter with every scene.

There is also a handful of celebrity cameos that brings additional entertainment like Micahel Pena, Charlie Day, Ron Livingston, and Norman Reedus to name a few. For your information, the movie is rated R-18 despite looking like a family movie.
Vacation stars Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann, Chris Hemsworth, Chevy Chase, and  Beverly D'Angelo.
